Atrios called for minting the coin the other day.
With John Boehner actively trying to destroy the U.S., why not mint a trillion dollar coin?
A few open questions – how big should the coin be? Should it be gigantic, or tiny? I like the gigantic coin, but good arguments can be made for the tiny version of the coin.
Who should be on the coin? Obama? You can make a case for beowulf – he came up with the idea, not Jack Balkin. I think a full profile of Carlos like the Ike dime would be fantastic.
Where should the coin be stored? I say: Fort Knox. We should have the Treasury mint it, then a huge, military escort for the coin to Fort Knox.
